GUEST,David Ingerson Lyr/Tune Add: Christmas Eve (Alfie Duggan) (14) RE: Lyr/Tune Add: Christmas Eve (Alfie Duggan) 23 Dec 21


I totally forgot that I had posted the words to Alph's song, which is really called "Joe and Me." I have been in communication with Alph and have spent some good time with him and his family during the past 12 or so years. He points out that this song was co-written by David Carruthers.

As for the tune, I have no idea if my rendering of ABC was accurate but I do know that the Midi that Joe Offer posted is not the correct melody for the song. The tune is the same as "It's all for the love of a fair young maid" or maybe it's called "The Portuguese Sailor Boy" which is often sung in the Dublin area. "Joe and Me" is also posted to my YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/lhKdB9NMpdQ

Cheers,

David
